Best plea deal option to avoid jail in DWI-2nd
I picked up a second DWI within 3 years.... Behind the wheel in a one car accident. I have no defense and just want the best plea deal I can get. In my first conviction, I paid a big fine with no probation and no interlock on my car. Is a similar deal possible on the second conviction? What about a fine and interlock only?I'm hearing that the laws have changed since my last dwi and even probation now requires some minimum jail time. Is there any option to avoid jail... even a minimum amount? I spent a night in jail on my arrest and I don't want to go back. I'm going to AA and haven't had a drink since the arrest. Thank you for any suggestions and advice.

What is the policy for entering Canada with DWI in the US court system? Thanks!

Applying for a job, and came across a DWI question?
"Have you ever been given a deferred adjudication or plead guilty or no contest for anything other than a traffic violation? (Mark yes if you have ever been given a deferred adjudication or plead guilty or no contest for a DWI offense:" I was not convicted as I did the PTI Program which later, thank God, got my case dismissed. I was going to answer yes, because it says deferred adjudication, but wanted to make sure. Am I correct? Thank you.
You are NOT correct. You have NOT been on deferred adjudication. Under Texas law, it is not legal to get deferred...
Should I apply for Naturalization 3 years after DWI/DUI case closed or wait 5 years?
I have been eligible to apply for naturalization/citizenship since 2013. However, I received a DWI/DUI in 2012 (permanent resident since 2008) that resulted in a guilty verdict and I was placed on probation for 1 year. My probation was completed successfully in June 2013. I am aware of the *5 year good moral character* clause USCIS uses to determine an approval/denial. If I take a chance and apply for naturalization/citizenship right now what are the chances of approval/denial, and how will that denial affect me when I reapply in the future since USCIS will have a record of my previous denied application? Also, would there be any advantage to apply now since 2016 is an election year?
In general a DWI in itself is not a bar during statutory 5 year period. However it does go too the issue of good moral...
